    Hey has anyone tried hunting pheasants with a .410.I hunt over a flusher so I think it could be a little difficult,even though he does hunt close.I would like to hear(read) some of your experiences with a .410

    Thanks

    I've seen this discussion somewhere before and I think the general consensus was that a 410 is not likely to deliver the clean, fast kill that should be the goal of good hunters.

    I know guys that do well with the 410. I myself would never use one, I stop at the 28 gauge. It is a gun that requires you know how to shoot 5/8 ounce of shot. No room for letting a big pattern cripple a bird with it.....Bob

    I have seen guys use the .410 and do great but, as Bob said you have to be agood shot! I have a Fox SXS and I love it for quail and squirell. But, the guy that uses it for everyhting told me that the .410 is basically a sharp shooters gun. It's just my .02, so let me know what the rest of you think.

    I shoot a lot and really enjoy shooting the .410 but I don't consider it a pheasant gun.  I try my best to make clean kills on any game I shoot and I don't feel like I could do that with the little gun.

    Not a practical choice - seems to be the popular opinion. I agree .

    Yeah, I'd never shoot a water buffalo with a .22.
